A traditional co*cktail meatball glaze is introduced to cooked baby carrots in this recipe for Grimmway Farms Jelly Glazed Baby Carrots!

You all have tried those famous grape jelly and chili sauce glazed co*cktail meatballs, right? They seem to be quite the popular appetizer, especially at parties this time of year. I honestly first couldn’t imagine they would be any good…I mean grape jelly and meatballs? Is that not the oddest combination ever? But then I had my first one, and now, every time I see these tasty little appetizers at parties I make a beeline and fill my plate!

Earlier this month, on the same day I was working on developing some recipes for Grimmway Farms carrots, I was also making a batch of the famous grape jelly co*cktail meatballs. What happened next was something I’d like to call a complete and total happy accident.

I had a batch of cooked carrots ready for what I had planned on being a pineapple glaze treatment when I took the spoon that I had used to stir the co*cktail meatballs to dip in and grab a freshly cooked carrot to nibble. The spoon was covered in delicious jelly / chili sauce glaze and as I took a bite of the sweet and spicy carrot, I knew my next Grimmway Farms recipe was born. Happy happy accident, indeed!

If you are looking for a unique side dish recipe to serve at your holiday dinner, I’d love for you to try this Jelly Glazed Baby Carrots recipe. Enjoy!

    I would have never thought to glaze carrots with grape jelly, but it looks fantastic. Pinned.

    The grape jelly on meatballs (or carrots!) does seem strange. But I was anti-fish tacos for the longest times and that definitely changed!!

    I had meatballs once that had grape jelly, ketchup, and jack daniels. They were pretty delicious, too. I think these carrots would curb the craving well 🙂
